He noted, "In these times when everyone should be protecting our environment, local government should be the role model."

A beautiful 30-foot Leyland Cypress from here in Middle Tennessee was planted in an area that allows ample room for growth. It is a fast growing tree, 3 to 5 feet per year, and its artfully-textured foliage is soft to the touch - no unpleasant thorns or prickly leaves. Plus, it stays green year-round.

The new county mayor told NewsRadio WGNS that he also wants to get more local horticultural groups involved in the the landscaping of our pre Civil War courthouse with its memorable chiming cupola clock.

Ketron explained, "Organizations like the Master Gardeners could help us make wise choices in landscaping that would present an even better first impression to those who visit our beautiful square."
